Education is one of the biggest sectors of the economy today. It plays an increasingly important role in the state and prominence of India. This will always be true because educating the young minds of our country is one of the, if not the, biggest responsibilities that lie with the country’s administration.
But, unfortunately, even though the advancement in Science and Technology has brought about many benefits and revolutions, it has left our country’s educators behind in its rapid pace of advancement and outdated.
Not only is the subject matter outdated, but the teaching methods are also outmoded. The COVID pandemic showed the world the need for online methods of education as the whole world closed the doors of its schools, colleges, and universities.
The flaws in traditional teacher training –
- No substantial motivation –
Teachers are not offered any substantial motivation for upskilling themselves. They are left alone and have to take out spare time from their busy schedules to study something or learn something new. So there is no real incentive for them to upgrade their knowledge or upskill themselves.
- Difficult courses which lead to frustration –
Another issue that plagues traditional teacher training methods is that they contain very complex and difficult courses that the teachers cannot complete smoothly. The courses are not designed keeping in mind the ease of learning , and because of this, teachers find these courses to be significant obstacles on the road to further training and learning. The difficulty of the courses leads to frustration and causes many teachers to give up all hopes of upskilling themselves.
- Jack of all trades, master of none –
Traditional teacher training courses attempt to make teachers jack of all trades and master of none. That is to say; they try to give the teachers little knowledge about a wide range of subjects instead of leading them to focus on one subject and become an expert in that subject. This causes teachers to know little about many subjects and not have in-depth knowledge about any particular subject. Subject matter expertise gets lost because of this approach.
